    I’m not sure what animal you are trying to kill. But my heavy target 308 shoots 175grain TMK 2840fps at muzzle. Little hot for an average hunting rifle but still supersonic at 900 yards. So I guess a 168 grain hunting bullet will achieve similar speed at muzzle with a liter load and still be super sonic at 900 yards. Should be enough to smack a deer down at 600 yards ?

    600 is Really pushing things to have enough energy to be shooting animals.... Happy that be smacking steel but that doesn't fill the freezer.

    If I do my part it is getting close to 1/2moa with the right ammo.

    its the lefthanded part thats i can see being the problem. most stores online seem to be out at the moment, have found a 6.5x55 would prefer to go big since i'm going to change from the 308 so the bigger the better!
    bolt stop is the same for left or right action so this is a not an issue, Gunworks sell them. i would look into getting your barrel reamed to 3006 and a long action bolt stop and long mag.
    175 to 180 grain going 2700-2800 will reach out quite well and no bolt mod's needed.
